Instument Cluster 2007 1.8 iVtec
Hi, the instrument cluster on our car has been behaving erratically recently. First the trip computer display started dimming and going off then springing back into life. Then yesterday the whole cluster went off, rev counter dropped to 0 all the gauges dropped and the lights went out completely. I tapped the throttle as I was in slow loving traffic at the time and everything came back to life an so far its been working normally!! The only issue was the Engine Management Light came on. When I checked the code with a rather basic ODBII reader and a free app it revealed a U0155 ( I think ) error, which stated "Lost Communication with Instrument Cluster/Controller Module", the lught has since gone out so I've cleared the code. So my conclusion is that the cluster is goosed. So my question to this knowledgeable audience is can I simply swap the cluster for an another ( same part number ) or does it need pairing? I had to change the speedo display a few years ago as that developed the 888 fault where it just starts showing random numbers or 888, and that was a straight swap. Thanks Phil!
